Keeping car maintianed after Detail

Got a question for all the detail gurus out there, I have a buddy who is hooking me up tomorrow and going to detail my car, getting rid of all those god awful swirl marks, what are your best tips/methods to keeping those swirl marks away, and keeping my exterior fresh looking? Thanks guys.

Do not use fabric softener on anything that's going to touch your paint. Since learning this, no more swirl marks. I mostly use microfiber towels.

Throw away any towel that hits the ground. Same goes with the car wash sponge. Use a quality car wash soap. Keep it off the ground at all costs. Use a detailer spray whenever wiping the car down. Don't use a dry towel. Don't press when wiping with a microfiber. Try to pat more than wipe whenever possible. Wax the thing every 1-3 months. Remove any surface contaminant immediately (bird crap) with detailer spray.


Get a quality random orbital... And some polishes (ultra fine)... Do this before waxing in the future. If finish is bad, wash, claybar (while washing), ultimate compound, polish, wax... Wax again (lol)

Interior... Use swiffer duster or MF to get dust off. Use protectant of choice. Treat leather.
